Ancient Skies

Composed by

Gavin Lendt

In his first work in the Grand Mesa catalog, the composer presents a musical meditation on how Planet Earth may have looked and felt millions of years ago. The theme of this monothematic work is first presented in a dark cloak in the slow introduction, using a sinister modality and lower register woodwinds to set a somber but edgy scene. After the lengthy introduction, the piece begins to dance and sparkle, suggesting the ancient planet coming to life.
